On behalf of the South West Dorset Multicultural Network (SWDMN) we would like to invite you to attend their 12th annual Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) event on Friday 27th January 2017 at the Corn Exchange, Dorchester from 12.30 - 1.30 pm (doors open at noon).
The theme of this year's event is "How can life go on?" The aftermath of the Holocaust and of subsequent genocides continues to raise challenging questions for individuals, communities and nations. HMD 2017 asks audiences to think about what happens after genocide and of our responsibilities in the wake of such a crime and how life cannot go on properly unless the roots of problems are addressed. The event will conclude with the lighting of candles and a minute's silence.
Free refreshments will be available after the event. The Corn Exchange will open from midday to allow time to view displays and meet with members of the Network, before the event commences at 12.30pm.
Tell MAMA are coming to Dorset to deliver an informative awareness session in relation to anti-Muslim incidents and will provide case studies and key learning for organisations and communities in making the commitment to tackle anti-Muslim prejudice and hate. Free tickets are now available to book here.

If you are interesed in finding out a bit more about Islam, then we have a short workshop to help you understand the Muslim faith and the working life of a busy Mosque. With communities across Dorset becoming more diverse it's never been so important that we understand each other. This short workshop is aimed at both staff and volunteers.
